Personally I want my guys wearing plain white shirts at the very least. Long or short sleeve it really doesn't matter to me. White Dickies in either shorts or pants is obviously preferred over jeans but it really doesn't bother me as long as they can paint.

When I hire someone calling themselves a professional painter I always meet them in a coffee shop before they ever step foot on a job site to see if I like the looks of them. I tell them then what I like my painters to wear but if they show up on a job site on their first day wearing a red Bud Light shirt I instantly start to wonder.

I made a few shirts with the company name but I mainly just wear them when going to do quotes or when going to trade events.

The last few years I have been regularly hitting my local Sherwin rep up for boxes of tees which I hand out to the crew. The guys love it. I used to do that with Benji shirts too but my local BM store is pretty stingy with tee's and their shirts are black (huh?) so we don't wear them.

Painters wear white. The public and clients expect it in my opinion.

I 'm the guy you're looking for. America's Got Talent wants me to paint a bedroom in less than 20 minutes. I did it for them, but some South American beat me. There's still a competition for us.

Speaking of shirts, and I think I prolly bring this up every year, I have always found that loose fitting, long sleeve 100% cotton to be the coolest garb in the hot broiling sun.

When sanding and such, true, the cotton stops breathing when coated and filled with dust, and a change is needed, or a hose down.

And did anyone get a french foreign legion style hat after last year's discussion?



They REALLY kept the neck cool and un-sunburnt (the "just say no to redneck" artifact)

That's been our approach, although I went for a slightly less dorky hat.

I just bought a boonie hat to work in, but I can't bring myself to wear it yet.

It is so dorky.

Pride commeth before fall.

One thing great about getting old, you starting giving less of a crap about what others think about how dorky protection looks. I notice a lot more people wearing paper masks and ear protectors while mowing the lawn - yes, I started that trend

I must be getting old, because I do the same thing! Besides, who wants to suck in aspirated dog poo that you didn't find during the initial search?
